Sneaker’s first solo EP for Uncanny Valley is a record of high humidity. The Java / Sumatra EP evolved in large parts in Indonesia when Sneaker lived there for almost a year and it literally conveys the Indonesian heat to dance floors in the rest of the world. Compared to his Acid House-inspired “You Think You Think” which was featured on the Uncanny Valley 004 compilation, this four new tracks show another, rather dark, Pop and New Wave side of Sneaker.

This is a placeholder in the discography of Sneaker.

The 12" or digital EP is released as Uncanny Valley Rec. 016 in 2013 in Dresden.

White Glow

[verse]
Why not leaving home?
To make friends.
To sure come back.
Why not risking everything?
If "everything" is close to nothing.

[bridge]
Nothing is strange itself.
It's us who feel like that.
It's us who leave it known.

[verse pt2]
The theatre - let's play!
All world is a stage.
Yearning and earning.
Let's improvise! Let's jump!

[chorus]
Staring into white glow.
Staring into white glow.
Staring into white glow.
Staring into white glow.
Staring into white glow.
Staring into white glow.
Staring into white glow.
Who needs to shake the dices twice?
Staring into white glow.
Who needs to win the same game thrice?

[verse]
You think you have to...
Who told you? Who can tell you?
So YOU want it.
And we get what we want.
You'll get ... we deserve,
what we agreed to.

[chorus]
[8+8 times]
Staring into white glow.

We have the right to be innocent.

[chorus]
[8 times]
Staring into white glow.

Misty Mirror

Blind glass
black mirror.
[3 times]
Is this me
in the mirror
turn your head
see you there
who am I?
Shaking my mind
against the devil inside.
Am I still the same
am I still the same
am I still the same
as yesterday?

close close
closer closer

Will I remember
me talking to you?

Do you know me
walking next to me?

Is this me
in the mirror
turn your head
see you there
who am I?
[repetition in variation]
close close
closer closer

Is this...
Is this me
in the mirror
turn your head.
Is this me
in the mirror
turn your head
see you there.

WHO AM I?

I wish I could walk. Je souhaitais je pourrais aller.
I might go so. Je peux aussi aller.
We might feel the same. Nous sentons le même. Le même rigidite.
Somewhere deep down low.
A sort of mortal fear. Le même mort. Deja la mort.
